Since 1860, Graceland Cemetery in Chicago, IL, has been the focus of architects and planners � so much so that it's usually defined by its association with and final resting place of many members of the renowned style of the Chicago School of Architecture.
John Wellborn Root (1850-1891) is one of the leaders of the "Chicago School� of architecture. One of his last great achievements was the Reliance Building, began in 1889 and finished posthumously in 1895. It towered 15 stories above the heart of Chicago at Washington and State streets, and featured broad plate-glass display windows on its ground floor, which set a permanent standard for commercial architecture.
Although John W. Root spent his career breaking away from architectural tradition, members of his firm created a totally traditional Celtic cross, which Root had admired in English cemeteries.
